Upgrading from Express to Full BES

Hi All,

 

Since I have discovered from my last post that I cannot block App World, what is the upgrade path (if any) from the BES Express to BES (full)? 

 

Just looking for the best advise to pass on to my client.

 

Thanks.

Once you install BES full, use transporter to move uses over which is part of the BRK.

Re: Upgrading from Express to Full BES

So can I simply install the full server version on top of the Express?

no, the databases are not compatable. you can uninstall old BES, install new BES with a new database and use transporter.

 

or use a new server and use transporter while both are running
